No worries, cheers Pins.
I love buying stuff online, and sometimes when it's held up, it just creates more excitement I become like a little kid at Xmas. Except its more like... Yuuusssss!!! New knobs for my Jazz bass!!! :mrgreen:

Love em. Haven't raised the action at all, just a restring and intonation was almost bang on too. Love the feel of them, keen on the tone, and tension is good for me, not too dissimilar to what I'm used to. Played at home with my practice amp and with my genz and headphones, Thursday night band practice night, so get a final verdict then. But now I'm thinking I should've got some for the precision too.
Cheers Pins, legendary!

Aww cool news :D and yes they are wicked on a P bass too.

Funnily enough I picked up my CV jazz which has the chrome flats off the P fitted,and was blown away by the tension !! tone is reasonable and bright as expected but would never buy another set,found it a chore to fret even with the low action.My old mechanics fingers must be getting weak.
It needs TI's as well,so let me know if you decide to pull the pin on a set for your P and piggy back my freight again.

I could be keen on this as I broke the e string on a gig last night :( . I might have to put the chromes back on for a while and see how they go live.

The drummer cracked a cymbal too. I think we need to have a good hard look at our (poor) technique :?
